Army of Darkness Reanimator (2013) – By Jason S. Lockard

Cult movies such as The Evil Dead and Reanimator have humongous followings. Fans love the off the wall antics and watch the films over and over again. Well, Dynamite comics has jumped into the act and has brought to these fanatics a new comic book that will be right up the fans alley.

Army of Darkness Reanimator is a one-shot comic book that combines the universe of Ash and Herbert West the Reanimator. This comic is a 48 pages long and contains a full back-story. The story follows Ash who is transported back in time and forced to work for Herbert West who has attached a dead man’s hand to him while reanimating it to work. What follows may or may not shock you.

Mark Rahner crafts a great story and his dialog feels like it belongs right in the movies. Than Randy Valiente’s art is some of the best I’ve seen in the horror comic book genre. This comic truly captures the worlds created in the movies Army of Darkness and Reanimator yet bringing a new story for fans to revel in.

If your a fan of Evil Dead and Reanimator; I would highly recommend pick up this book. You are going to love it and for only $4.99 how can you go wrong. Head over to
